Defensive lineman Anthony Chickillo to return to UM for senior season
JAN 08, 2014 9:53p ET
Chickillo, the first third-generation Hurricane, took to Twitter Wednesday night to announce his decision.
"To end all the rumors, I will return for my final season at Miami, let's make it a good one," Chickillo wrote.
The 6-4, 277-pounder, who received NFL Draft projections, has played in 37 games over three seasons, totaling 129 tackles, 20.5 tackles for a loss, 12.5 sacks, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and two pass breakups.
In 2013, Chickillo recorded career highs in tackles (46) and tackles for a loss (7.5) in 13 games.
The returning Hurricanes will get back to work soon, as Miami announced it will hold its spring game at 6 p.m. April 12 at Sun Life Stadium. The Hurricanes finished this past season 9-4 in head coach Al Golden's third year at the helm.
